          Great central location. Speedy check in, friendly staff. Pleasant clean room

          Parking at the car park next door was very expensive (19 pounds/night) for a one night stay. Could a cheaper rate be negotiated with the carpark. We stayed at a Premier Inn in Newcastle last night and they have an agreement with a car park next door for 6 pounds/night.

        • Family with children

          Stayed in a quadruple room. Felt that the room was a bit smaller for 4 people but the rate was great. Didn't have breakfast as it was additional ~£14 per person. There are plenty of options available within few mins of walking for breakfast options. Lack of on-site / free praking is a minus. One has to add £16 per day (24 hrs) for car-parking to the hotel room rate to get a better comparison with others. Stayed for one night only and have no complaints. I would recommend it for short stay.

          Lack of free parking.

          The rooms and the staff service were excellent. Room services was quick, efficient and polite.

          The breakfast was really really disappointing. Cheap ham and cheese for the cold breakfast. Cheap yogurts. Pale barely cooked sausages. Flabby fat bacon Hard tomatoes Dried up hash browns. Those big silver containers end up steaming the breakfast. The tea was nice though.

          Very clean and excellent location. Nice spacious room.

          Lack of written information - nothing in room to say how to work heating, what times the restaurant is open, anything about the hotel facilities, no breakfast menu on tables etc.

          Smart rooms, lovely bathroom. Excellent, helpful staff.

          Room was too hot. Opened the windows but was kept awake by constant noise. No car park, costly to park nearby.

          Excellent rooms and very quiet for the centre of Manchester.
